Retrofit of existing measuring system with surcon 3D OIS

The earliest possible detection of defects becomes an indispensable "must have" in seamless tube production. Even today, it is no longer possible to do without high-precision measuring technology without otherwise having to call the highest product quality into question.
The integration of a surcon 3D surface inspection into an existing tube wall thickness measuring system accordingly offers serious advantages over an additional, stand-alone measuring point:

  • All measurement data such as wall thickness and eccentricity, diameter and profile, temperature and surface defects are determined simultaneously at the same measurement location and have the same pipe length and angle reference
  • The existing IMS measuring point can continue to be used as before
  • There is no need to create additional installation space for an additional measuring point
  • Only minor adjustments to the roller table elements and their surroundings are necessary

Placed behind the last of the three forming stages, the surface inspection of hot-rolled finished tubes thus moves directly to the manufacturing process in the hot section of the seamless tube mill:

In the future, possible surface defects will be detected immediately after finish rolling and corrective measures in the direction of the process and tools can be initiated quickly and in a targeted manner.
